Great stuff! Thank you for sharing!
We recently attended a two day seminar last month, providing demonstrations and workshops. Videos of two of the four demos can be viewed on our Facebook Group. These videos show differing types of scenarios such as Loh Mushti (akin to Vajra Mushti), Axes on 6ft staffs, sword and sheild, leapord claws, Khukri and much more. Enjoy!
If you cant view the videos let me know.
Comments and thoughts are welcomed!
Please visit the group to see a new video uploaded in relation to Loh Mushti (Iron Fist Fighting) which is utilised by wearing the bracelets below.
Excellent page. I just joined up on it.
Peace favor your sword,
Thanks guys, I will be uploading some other vids within the week, one of which will be a demo at a Bujinkan camp run by Marc Moor.
I like the Axe stuff, and the bits with the... Katar?
The group has had a couple of video updates.
Salotar Yudh - Indian Stick Fighting
Pt 1 of 4 - A demo at Shihan Marc Moors Bujinkan Camp. The rest to be uploaded within the next few days.
Cryozombie, you are correct, it is a Katar. In the near future we will do videos dedicated to the use of each weapon.
The complete demo at Shihan Marc Moors Bujikan Camp has been uploaded, nearly an hour worth of demonstration of technqiue with live edged blades.
Coming up within the next week is a video of Shastarvidiya demonstrated at an annual Filipino Martial Arts seminar infront of the likes of Brian Jones, Pat O Malley and Krishna Godainia.
The group has been updated with a video of Shastarvidiya being demonstrated at the 5th Annual British FMA Festival. This video is probably the best in terms of angle showing the application of footwork against multiple opponents.
I've always enjoyed weapons work so I found the links in this thread vewry interesting. Thanks!
Its good to see ancient martial arts preserved like this. My worry is our roots will be lost to our busy youth who do not really care about the ancient past. Everyone is getting busyer and busyer. Free time to do a step by step progresion to get proficient in something there is not much use forl in modern society is becoming more scarce as time goes on. People seem to want the quick-fix methods today. I hope there will always be someone like the one in the video, who will preserve the root of each ancient culture to pass it on for generations to come. It would be sad to see it die out in the future and to just find it in books.
Hi Ron, you are right to say that some people may wish to gain the easy quick fix, but it is only through this pursuit that if worthy, they will realise that the true essence behind martial arts cannot be learnt in a short period. As with any art, it should be infinite, so in essence it can never be mastered, as time is beyond end and martial arts is all about mastering time. The teacher himself is trying his best to pass on his knowledge but as with anything, nothing comes without effort which we must all endevour to put in.
Here are some newly uploaded videos from last years Martial Arts Festival. Demonstrations of Thugee (Bandit Techniques), Hand to Hand, Live Sword Multiples, and a better insight to the lifestyle of he Akali Nihang Singh Warriors.
Videos can be seen here:
A new video which was aired on the History Channel for a series called "Twisted Weapons of the East" has been uploaded on the group. Nihang Niddar Singh explains the usage, strategy and technique in using a chakar (throwing quoit), which historical texts record have the ability to chop off limbs.
5 new videos have been added to the group from the recent Martial Arts Show at the NEC Birmingham UK. The videos focus more on describing the thought and procedure in the art when engaging an opponent, emphasis particular on entries and angling against multiple opponents. Enjoy!
The previous videos have been uploaded onto Youtube on our channel. In the next few weeks ill be uploading videos of a seminar with Tuhon Pat O Malley and Nihang Niddar Singh, and a descriptive demonstration on the use of Lathis (Staffs) and Gandasas (Axes on Staffs).
Enjoy, and subscribe!
